Taste of Little Italy comes to the Comic Book Lounge!

Running this entire weekend on College Street between Bathurst and Shaw street it’s the annual TASTE OF LITTLE ITALY street Festival, and the Comic Book Lounge + Gallery is located right in the heart of it at College and Clinton!

We’ve got TONS of fun things planned, with great guests like Agnes Garbowska, Chris Yao, Mike Del Mundo and Spent Pencils Studio on Saturday, cosplayers (remember how awesome they made FCBD 2012?), Wii games and movies in the Lounge area, and we’ll have deals aplenty — like our first ever $2 Archie Digest Sale and bargain books table! Plus — our new door sign debuts today!

TASTE OF LITTLE ITALY EXTENDED HOURS!

FRIDAY – Noon until 10pm.

SATURDAY – Noon until 10pm.

SUNDAY – Noon until 5pm.

Here’s the official Press Release from the TOLI organizers:

COME TO THE TASTE OF LITTLE ITALY AND WATCH THE EURO CUP!
Mid-June weekend a celebration of Italian food, music and patio life June 15th to June 17th

College Street, Toronto – Italian villages celebrate life in the piazza, or town square, with music, food, a little vino and a lot of fun. From Friday, June 15 through Sunday, June 17, Toronto lives its own piazza experience, with the fourteenth annual “Taste of Little Italy”.

College Street, from Bathurst to Shaw, becomes a pedestrian square for the weekend, lined by local restaurants sampling their very best fare, music on every corner, shopping and exploring, and some of the best people watching in the city. Over 45 restaurants will offer expanded patios. And many of those restaurants have large screen televisions perfect for watching your favourite soccer team play during the Euro Cup!

The Taste of Little Italy is a salute to everything that makes this neighbourhood, and really the whole City of Toronto, such a great place to live,” said Lenny Lombardi,
President of CHIN Radio and Chair of Little Italy’s business improvement association. “Little Italy is an exciting area in which to live and to visit. Our retailers and restaurants are operated by families who delight in getting to know their customers. Drop in over the weekend, and you’ll see why people love this neighbourhood. And then you’ll come back, again and again.”

During the Taste of Little Italy, over 20 bands, choirs and other acts will perform from street corners stretching the length of College from Bathurst to Shaw.

Some 45 College Street restaurants will be sampling the pride of their kitchens, serving up pasta specialties, meats, seafood, desserts and other treats, all for between $2 and $7. Restaurant patios will offer Sambuca Ramozzotti, and ice cold Coca Cola.

“The Taste of Little Italy allows you to experience a little bit of Italian culture and cuisine. Try a Ramazzotti Fresco and enjoy the music said Lombardi. “There’s more to
see, more to do, and more than enough to eat and drink. You can check it out for yourself on www.tasteoflittleitaly.ca, or better yet – see you on the Piazza.”

Join Us For A Judicious Jamboree of Joy and Jubilance (in comic book form) on June 5th, 2012

Once again a HUUUUUGE week here at The Lounge with a wide variety of new releases and a good number of old favorites finally available for purchase again. It would be foolish to pretend the biggest event in new comics releases this week isn’t BEYOND WATCHMEN: MINUTEMEN #1 – so take your sides as to whether or not it’s an aberration of creative bankruptcy or another example of a great comic by our pal Darwyn Cooke (for the record – we’re in the Great Comic camp).  Kev seems to be really excited by the arrival of Valiant’s HARBINGER #1 as well as the second issue of X-O MANOWAR. LOUNGE favourite POPEYE finds its second issue on our stand, as well as works by LOUNGE -pals Ramón Pérez (A TALE OF SAND – back in stock!), and Micheal Cho (BACK ALLEYS AND URBAN LANDSCAPES). Did we mention LOXLEYS AND THE WAR OF 1812 by Allen Grant, Claude St. Aubin, and Lovern Kindzierski? Because we sure should – historical drama and a kid-friendly storyline makes for one of the best indie books we’ve seen in a long time.  Top it off with a broad variety of books on drawing by ANDREW LOOMIS, BURNE HOGARTH and other assorted artbooks and there’s a little something for everyone
